A Chair Lift Broke Down In Banff And Skiers Had To Rappel Down Ropes
At least the view was nice.
If there's any upside to being left dangling on a broken chair lift in the middle of the Rocky Mountains, it's that the view doesn't suck.
About 100 people had to shimmy down ropes after a chair lift broke down Sunday at Banff Sunshine Village, a ski resort in Alberta.
It took several hours for crews to get everyone back on the ground. Mark Pawley, who was among those stranded, wrote on Facebook that the rescue team worked quickly as people shivered in their seats.
"Banff Sunshine Village, I'm proud of you and your personnel, and never regret being a season pass holder. You guys rock."
Pawley posted a video on YouTube showing the people in front of him getting lowered to the ground.
